An Advent Story


As a celebrity pastor, I sometimes have to go to Arlington, Texas. I did that yesterday and visited with a church person whose Mother had died. I took Blue Eschaton along for the ride and dropped him off at Dallas HQ.

Edgehill

He liked that, until I strolled out under the leafy boulevards of Winnetka Heights for a a glass of the right stuff. I was no sooner gone than HQ Coy was calling in, "Your dog is whining and howling!" I hate having to micro-manage but I quick marched back to base to find Blue Crybaby curled up in the back hallway, protecting the door. 

Well, man's best friend and all that, and you may be interested to know he's being fitted with titanium teeth by a canine security professional in California. This doesn't come cheap, but I feel it's worth it.

Dallas HQ

Then today I drove to Home Depot to buy a Christmas tree. The Hispanic woman who trimmed and bagged the tree told me it was a good one.

"I got one of these bad boys," she said, showing me a picture of her tree. "That's a real good tree," I replied. "Yeah it is," she grinned. "Put this in the truck?"
"You bet."

And that's just what we did. Loaded the tree in the truck, right there and then. It'll look good when it's up.

All For Christmas

Puritans hate Christmas and think it's pagan. Their Godless, comsymp, NWO, atheist cousins hate it too, because it's Christian. When Blue Apocalypse has his titanium implants up and running that crew had better watch out.

Blue Howler is snoring. For now.

aw, now see-- the real question is HOW could you possibly have left that adorable face behind while you went for a stroll?!

Blue Hannibal is not really sleeping. He's plotting. And he's storing energy, holding himself in reserve.

It's not easy, Jenny, but sometimes I harden myself!

LSP said...

You're right, LL. He's recharging.

I know this is true by the way his eye opens when I go to check the turkey pie in the oven...

Dang, Blue Berserker looks close enough to my late Jack (the farting wonder dog) to be a brother.

LSP said...

Interesting. he is a bit "windy"...

jenny said...

Blue Berserker! Now THERE is a good and saintly second name for the dog. I like that.

Blue Abijah really does have a hint of the cray cray in his eyes. He'll look wonderful with his new teeth.

LSP said...

There's definitely some crazy mixed in with the little Blue Howler.

You got to drink in establishments that are civilised enough to cope with Blue Funk.

That's a very good point, Anonymous. Noted.
